Hey All, We are a little late posting to this forum and I hope this is an appropriate section to place our post in. We have a Shoot-em-up Game Jam (of sorts) running all the way through 2015, in monthly installments, called.. #ShmupJam. So the basic idea is anyone with the skills to make a shmup, or a first time game in this genre, can participate in the monthly jam. Each month the era moves forwards in time. **updated 7th May 2015** We’ve added compilation images for waves 1-4! Wave 05 is ACTIVE! - http://jams.gamejolt.io/shmupjam05/ Wave 04 Games – http://jams.gamejolt.io/shmupjam04/games Wave 03 Games – http://jams.gamejolt.io/shmupjam03/games Wave 02 Games – http://jams.gamejolt.io/shmupjam02/games Wave 01 Games – http://jams.gamejolt.io/Shmuproom01/games The rules are fairly open.. it's not really a competition, just for fun. The theory was that starting with some of the earliest games would ease us (in terms of technical demands) into the Jam, and each month we would have more and more of a framework and some experience to work with. Create something retro looking, modernize a classic.. perhaps simplicity could be the key to getting in a quick submission. You don't have to submit a full game, prototypes, visualizations or simple tech demo's are perfectly acceptable. Each jam runs for a whole month, and if you miss the deadline you could still get away submitting it to the next one. You might also check out our Shmup community over on deviant art the Shmuproom, which has all kinds of inspiration on it too. So.. if you are interested, please feel free to join in. You can leave comments on this thread (let us know which framework you using) or if you can get your games onto GameJolt even better. Thanks all, -kb
